Like other marketing boards, BC Egg is a non-profit organization comprised of 136 local egg farmers. BC Egg is authorized to facilitate a system of supply management. Part of what we do at BC Egg is regulate egg production and movement within the province. Egg Farmers of Canada (EFC) coordinates and consolidates provincial efforts.
